Tradition, innovation, sustainability: Bolzano will surprise you
Bolzano is a place where the traditions of the past intertwine with the challenges of the future. Innovation and sustainability are the keywords for the new development of a city that is able to look to the future while maintaining strong ties to its roots and values.
Why choose Bolzano as your next holiday destination? The answer is simple: to be immersed in a unique cultural mix. Here, north and south, Mediterranean and Alpine meet, creating an irresistible and unique combination.
Be enchanted by the different architectural styles that are colourful and soft and, as soon as you turn the corner, become imposing and square. Stroll along the acardes, the commercial heart of the old town over 300 metres long, listening to the mix of languages that characterise our city and immerse yourself in the sounds of nature by walking along the many promenades that climb the sunny slopes. Get on your bike and explore more than 50 kilometres of cycle paths through Bolzano. Discover the green and innovative soul of the city. Take one of the cable cars from the city centre to reach the surroundings of the South Tyrolean capital in just a few minutes, including Colle, an oasis of peace, and the Renon plateau.
Taste the perfect combination of Tyrolean cuisine and Mediterranean flavours in the many restaurants in the city streets. Combine traditional dishes with wines from the many wineries in the valley. Marvel at the sparkle of the traditional and modern shop windows. There are plenty of ideas for taking home a unique souvenir. Don't miss the numerous events that enliven the gateway city to the Dolomites in every season.
Follow in the footsteps of history with a wide range of cultural events. With parks, museums, castles and many other events, there is fun for families too.
Let yourself be inspired, Bolzano is this and much more!
Know the city
Bolzano is a clear reflection of the meeting and exchange of different cultures. In art, for example, Giotto's paintings and works of the Gothic school coexist, while in architecture, the unique contrast between the old town and the new town, separated by the Talvera river, is quite obvious.
What to do?
In Bolzano, the landscape offers the right balance between living space and green areas. The city has many routes for those who prefer to take a walk without straying too far from the centre; at the same time, the hikers can use one of the cable cars to reach the plateaus surrounding the capital. Here, nature has no equal!
